    My win % in UFC has gone from 5% to now 7%, lol. But this thread will be for my best UFC picks ever.



    Maia/Usman ^2.5 (-120)
    Till / Thompson starts round 3 -210


    Previously posted the Maia fight. This is for Till/Thompson fight. In at -210. Thompson's not getting sent to the hospital in the first two rounds. This only loses if Till get cleaned up in the first 2 rounds. But this is a long 5-round match (-445 to start 2nd) and they will pace accordingly. If there's a finish, likely end of 3rd or some time in 4th or 5th. O/U is set 3.5. This seems like a steal to me to simply complete 2 rounds.

    Probably two of the easiest bets in the history of the UFC. Both easy as could be.

    How the location can determine what went on in the octagon from the eyes of the judges... that is an eternal flaw of judges. So if the fight took place in South Carolina then Thompson would have won? Such is the lie of judging. A man either won or lost... or it was a draw. The location shouldn't determine the winner. Anyways, this is a business... so being right or wrong doesn't matter.... only the dollar.

    All that is besides the point. I'm terrible at picking this sport, but if freebies come along like these .... I'll post them.

    DWCS 2018 Week 1 - Heavyweight 3 rounds - TUF Gym - Las Vegas, Nevada - UFC Fight Pass
    Tue 6/12 1001 Brandon Sayles +235 o1½ +315
    9:30PM 1002 Greg Hardy -275 u1½ -380


    Not enough info on Hardy, but gut instinct here is that under 1.5 rolls in easy. O/c, limited info and high price means it can't be a go. However, if props are available, there'll likely be a solid angle.

    Not enough info on Hardy? Lol,if you really actually Capped fights,you’d know there’s not enough info on this fight because it was canceled a month ago. Why? Because Brandon Sayles would definitely beat Hardy,but his replacement,Austen Lane,although an ex-NFL’r himself,is decent but still learning,and has a chance to win,but probably won’t on this stage. Either way,carry on...lol

    I've said it a million times I know about 5% jack shit in MMA. I must say, though, that you've always been an asshole (and despite being cordial with you). You've got a twig up your ass to about the same level that Mobdeeper thinks logically -- it's too far gone. But carry on.

    I’ve never been an asshole to you,lol,you got put in your place several times before,just like now,and you don’t like it. Typical,try to turn the tides when you’re wrong,imagine that. You post shit,a lot,literally...

    You’re just like MLDog,was very cool at first,and turned into a nerve racking wrong all the time nobody...

    I disagree. I think the tone of your original post clearly shows you're an ass. And it confirmed my previous opinion of you.

    If you want to have an MMA contest of 30 picks range +130 to -130 for the period of JUN-JUL-AUG, we can do that. The loser gets banned for SEP - DEC (four months until the end of the year).

    I'm pretty sure I can beat you despite your knowledge and big mouth.

    You posted a line on a fight canceled a month ago. Just admit you didn't know what you were talking about and move on. Ban bets are stupid.

    I wouldn't know who Hardy was fighting either way. I would take Hardy under no matter who it was... same with CM Punk's first fight. I would've bet against CM Punk whoever it was.

    Why don't we make it a 3-person tournament? Smartmoney is an agreeable chap. Pats can be #4 as well.

    The way you make picks -- like a scared tennis bettor taking dogs on the plus side -- it would be very hard for you to win a tournament of 30 picks (+/-130 range) even against a man who knows 5% MMA like myself.

    Should be an easy win for you, right? I'd even do a perma-man. If you score ahead me of over 30 picks, I'll never post in MMA again.


    Just think about it while you're at jiu-jitsu practice and you (accidentally) fondle another man's balls.

    You will wisely avoid the competition... b/c you will lose.
